Art: "Métaphores sculpturales & paraboles picturales"

This is the title of an exhibition of works by quintessentially Belgian artist Patryck de Froidmont currently showing in Brussels. The vernissage last Thursday evening was well-attended, and the ambiance was especially animated as guests savoured the word-plays and humour evident in the titles and the striking originality – and remarkable variety – of the exhibits themselves. Rarely have so many works by a single artist resonated with me so much. Well worth a visit!

 
Open 8:30–17:30 every day (except weekends and public holidays) until 28 April in the reception hall of Rossel & Cie (publishers of Le Soir) at 120 Rue Royale, 1000 Brussels.
 
The works are available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds going to Les Oeuvres du Soir. For further details, contact Nathalie Malice at Les Oeuvres du Soir.
 
Patryck de Froidmont's website is also worth a visit: www.defroidmont.com

 

 

 

Patryck de Froidmont on the opening night of his exhibition. On the wall behind him is one of my personal favourites among the works on show, a picture entitled "Surroyalisme". In the background is a provocative sculptural work incorporating model soldiers in combat, entitled "Il leur manque une case".
